Rick's Road Trip: Evangelical Librarians in Salt Lake City

While Temple Square has the most visitors in town, Salt Lake City's amazing library is a close second, with about 4 million visitors a year. It's a striking modern building (by Moshe Safdie, the same architect as the Vancouver Library) designed with the Information Age in mind. As our society evolves beyond traditional print, modern librarians remind us that librarianship is more than just shelving books. It's fundamentally facilitating the exchange of ideas and information: courses, books, Internet access, and hosting itinerant travel writers with stories to tell. Libraries help a society of haves and have-nots bridge the digital divide, providing free Internet and computer access to people who couldn't otherwise afford it. The Salt Lake City Public Library is thriving with users and is generously supported by the community, with 97% of its revenue raised through local taxes.
